Lunar New Year, Year of the Water Tiger

  I love the Lunar New Year! I save my resolutions, word of the year, and yearly mantra for the Lunar New Year (yes part of the reasoning is due to the fact that I’m just not ready yet January first).     Lunar New year or more commonly called the Chinese New Year is upon us. This day is marked in many regions as a day of large celebration and transition into a new year. Red is commonly worn and it is a day of celebration and food. Yes the date is...

Lion's Gate 

“Remember what you must do when they undervalue you,  when they think your softness is your weakness,  when they treat your kindness like it is their advantage.  You awaken every dragon,  every wolf,  every monster that sleeps inside of you  and you remind them what hell looks like when it wears the skin of a gentle human.” ― Nikita Gill, Wild Embers: Poems of Rebellion, Fire and Beauty Today I welcome you to the new moon in Le...

Summer Solstice

Summer solstice is the longest day of sunlight. I grew up celebrating the solstices and as I grew older I started to focus more on the symbolism of the celebration and the rituals that came along with it. On this Summer solstice, there is the MOST amount of daylight we will enjoy all year, Light symbolizes good. The following questions I use for my prompts when journaling: What do you love about yourself?  What do you love to do? What lights the fire of passion in you?  When counter or negative thoughts com...

Samhain Full Moon

Happy Halloween, or Samhain, and welcome to the full blue moon. Samhain was a holiday celebrating the end of the harvest and the welcome of the darker part of the year. Some believed across cultures that the barriers between the physical world and the spirit world are thin. This moon coming to us in scorpio season which is a fixed sign bringing in more eeriness and mystique to this powerful moon.  This evening the moon feels powerful and eerie so I’m staying close to home performing the ...

Harvest Moon

🌕 She was devoted to the moon. In its darkness she found comfort. In its light she found hope. 🌕 Welcome to the full harvest moon in Aries, the warrior sign. Most full moons tend to bring tension and high emotions and unfortunately this stubborn sign is no exception. Specifically any tension you are feeling in relationships right now may be at a height; if you are feeling rather frustrated, know that you are not ALONE (I mean, it’s 2020, you...

Autumn Equinox 

“A seed that’s caught from falling Will never reach the ground And as such its true potential Never can be found Watching is the hardest part The tree lets go its seed Knowing it must fall away If its power should be freed There is no way of knowing Which seeds will find their way We hope that they will safely land And learn to grow someday There is comfort in the knowing That somewhere in each seed Is all of life’s instructions And all the love they need.” ~Robert Longley 🍂 🍃 🍁 🍂 Welcome to the Autumn Equinox. Today is the day ...

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse

Welcome to the full moon and lunar eclipse in cancer! The first full moon of this year and decade is a powerful one bringing energy of deep emotional connection and nurturing. On this evening of the full moon I am reflecting on my foundational beliefs surrounding self nurture and needs. What makes you feel safe? How nurturing are you to yourself? How forgiving are you? Especially self forgiveness. And finally finishing with a letter to my child self. So as to not get caught in the emotions of this moon and to gain perspective so you can respond not react, try a grounding meditation this evening. Close your eyes. Breathe deep and long holding the bre...

Full Hunter Moon

“What triggers you: controls you. Have peace: and you control it.” ~Lalah Delia Last night we had the full Hunter’s moon in Aries, also known as the Blood Moon as it is associated with the blood from the harvest hunt or the leaves turning red. This full moon, as most do, brings the energy for change and manifestation. SO if you are in need of change, listen up! What are your hidden dreams and desires? With these aspirations, what are your fears? These fears keep our dreams buried yet they are the KEY to manifestation. So in order to use the power of this full moon ask yourself ...

Autumn Equinox

Welcome to the day of the Autumn Equinox. Today is the day where the sun crosses the equator and those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere will begin to see more darkness than daylight. The hours of daylight between sunrise and sunset have been growing shorter each day since the Summer solstice. I’ve grown up celebrating this season change with family and friends. We would gather to share hearty food and drinks and some of ...

Full Moon in Scorpio

🌕✨Welcome to the full moon in Scorpio.✨🌕 This one is a doozy.🥴 As a species we tend to get a little crazy around the full moon. I know moms who swear up and down about it, people who work with animals especially the wild variety at sanctuaries, and working in a hospital: The crazy comes out on the full moon. But remember, the crazy is always there, it’s just this beautiful full moon and all of the full light illuminating it for us to see. See so clearly that we can’t close our eyes to the truth.

Blood Moon

Welcome to the full blood moon. The air feels thick like dense clouds with an electricity so magnified you can feel it. The lunar eclipse today was the longest eclipse of the 21st century! Eclipses are a time of hiding the light and enveloping all in darkness… What a beautiful time to reflect that no matter our insta posts or highlight reel, we ALL contain darkness. Instead of denying or hiding your darkness in the shadows, let this eclipse expose it. Let it make you feel raw, exposed. Then pause and understand that the darkness in you is also the darkness in me. For we all contain the light as well as the dark. We may deny our darkness but it is there. Acknowledge the darkness. Sit with it. Learn from it. But it does not define yo...
